Midnight ice cream at Granby
Ice cream between 5 PM and 3 AM is what many citizens have been enjoying thanks to the initiative proposed by Monsieur Grizzly.
“Since the context of the epidemic has affected the mental health of many and the curfew has had a negative effect on it, we want to collect donations for the cause,” the dairy bar said in a Facebook post.
All profits earned this evening were donated to the Fondation du Center hospitalier de Granby.
Show outing and comedy in Baldwin Park
The next generation of humorists in Quebec decided to perform their outdoor shows Friday evening by making their first free show at Baldwin Park, in the Plateau-Mont-Royal district of Montreal.

This evening was also the first in a series of shows the Picnic & Humor group will perform in several parks in the city over the coming weekends.
